Organised by Easy Fairs and Londonlaunch.com, the first show took place in June 2008 at Earls Court alongside the Exhibiting Show.

"2009 will be a tough year and the reality is London is pretty booked up, and there are a couple of other London-based shows," said Easy Fairs UK managing director Peter Heath.

"I sat down with London Launch before Christmas and we decided to take a break from the show in 2009 due to the current economic crisis. It was the right thing to do and allows us to concentrate on plans for the 2010 show."

Heath added that the show could become peripatetic, allowing visitors to experience a different London venue each year.

Easy Fairs also announced that its sales figures were up 11% from April to September last year. It will also launch two shows this year: Packaging Ireland from 17-18 June at RDS in Dublin, and Polymer Innovations from 11-12 November at the NEC.
